A simple pendant light hangs over a round Scandinavian table in a dining room, giving it a simple, modern look. This white wood bench seat was covered in a vibrant orange fabric and decorated with pillows in multiple patterns, including tropical and solid green. A funky chevron throw adds a finishing touch to this dining room seating area.
A built-in nightstand backed by decorative beadboard provides stylish, functional storage in this transitional kid's bedroom. An upholstered headboard with two rows of nailhead trim is custom-built to fit the space, and reading lights above are a practical addition. Dinosaur-printed bedding, acid green pillows and a matching chevron rug add kid-friendly flair.
In this New York bedroom, the designer's goal was to create a space well-suited for a young child but flexible enough to grow with her into her teens. Weitzner wallpaper is a fun yet subtle backdrop for lilac and fuchsia fabrics. Bold pillows atop the Rogers & Goffigon bedding tie in with a chevron-patterned pouf in the room's cozy sitting nook.
Bold and colorful patterns can be on more than just pillows and throws. Try out some bright, patterned curtains for a statement piece in your living room. "In my shop, chevron, ikat, lattice and trellis prints are popular right now," says Tosha Scott, owner of Castle Creek Designs. The most important thing when bringing in window treatments with lots of color and pattern is to consider how other accessories will help temper the space. If you go bold with window treatments, think about bringing in some neutral furnishings that won't compete with the pattern. Image courtesy of Romo
The bedroom is all about the mix. The mix of fresh patterns and colorful textiles create a cozy, comfortable and beautiful place to sit back and relax. A headboard was installed using left-over yardage from a project. The close-knit chevron pattern creates an unexpected headboard for the bed. The black and white pattern is a complement to the black and white knit pillow that Kelley likes to cozy up on. At the foot of the bed, Kelley Carter has incorporated a textile from her travels: fabric from the Philippines that adds a vibrant display to the bed. The patterned textile is filled with meaning, a reflection of Kelley’s own Filipino heritage.
